Arkansas junior WR Jared Cornelius (back) is expected to play against Texas A&M on Saturday.

Cornelius sat against Texas State over the weekend due to a sore back. He is expected to practice on Tuesday as he ramps back toward Saturday's showdown with the Aggies. In two games, he has caught three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown. Playing behind Keon Hatcher and Drew Morgan, the 5-foot-11, 212-pounder holds no fantasy value.

Arkansas sophomore RB Rawleigh Williams II rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries in Saturday's 42-3 win over Texas State.

Williams scored from one yard out near the end of the first half, then repeated the feat from 15 yards away in the third quarter. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder averaged 6.3 YPC. For the season as a whole, he has rushed for 354 yards and three touchdowns. Arkansas is off to a 3-0 start to the season. They will need to defeat Texas A&M next weekend if they want to jump that record to 4-0.

Arkansas sophomore RB Rawleigh Williams III rushed for 137 yards on 28 carries in Saturday's 41-38 double-overtime win over TCU.

Williams averaged 4.9 YPC with a long run of 37 yards. Through two games, he has now rushed for 233 yards. The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder is still looking for his first touchdown, though. He will try to pick that up against Texas State next weekend.
Sep 10 - 11:32 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen did everything in Saturday's 41-38 double-overtime win over TCU, throwing for three touchdowns, catching a two-point conversion and scoring the game-winning rushing touchdown.

Arkansas held a 20-7 lead entering the fourth quarter, but that is when matters went wonky. TCU would make a mad charge to eventually take a 28-20 lead with a little over two minutes remaining in regulation. Allen would make sure that didn't stand as the final score. He fired a 16-yard touchdown pass to Keon Hatcher to draw the Razorbacks to within 28-26 with a minute left. Hatcher returned the favor on the two-point conversion, taking the ball on a reverse and lofting a perfect pass to Allen, who made an equally perfect catch in the corner of the end zone to knot the score at 28-all. In the first overtime, the 6-foot-1, 216-pound gunslinger hit Jeremy Sprinkle on a 19-yard scoring pass. TCU would re-knot the score and boot a field goal in the second overtime before Allen came back with a five-yard game-winning touchdown run to polish off the game. Arkansas will have a breather against Texas State next weekend, with Texas A&M to follow.

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema said redshirt senior WR Keon Hatcher (foot) was "the Keon I saw of old" on Saturday against Louisiana Tech.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder missed most of last year with a broken foot. Over the weekend versus LTU, Hatcher led all receivers with 86 yards receiving on six catches. Bielema praised Hatcher's blocking and also his toughness after the catch.
Sep 9 - 4:55 PM

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said junior WR Jared Cornelius was limited in Tuesday's practice but is expected to be a "full go" Saturday against TCU.

Bielema did not disclose the nature of the injury. Whatever it is, Cornelius likely suffered it in Saturday's win over Louisiana Tech. In that one, he had only one reception for 13 yards. Arkansas has an underrated receiving corps with Keon Hatcher, Drew Morgan and Cornelius along with tight end Jeremy Sprinkle. A quarter of Cornelius' last season was stolen by a broken arm.

Arkansas sophomore RB Rawleigh Williams III rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in Saturday's win over Louisiana Tech.

Williams looked plenty healthy after spending the offseason rehabbing from midseason neck surgery. He averaged 4.0 YPC with a long run of 14 yards on Saturday and led Arkansas with 24 carries. That far outpaced the second-leading ball carrier, Kody Walker, who saw a mere six carries on the afternoon. With Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams both off to the NFL, Williams will have ample opportunities for workhorse carries this season so long as he can stay healthy.
Sep 3 - 8:38 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen completed 20-of-29 passes for 191 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech.

Louisiana Tech actually held a 20-14 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but Allen led a comeback charge which culminated in a four-yard scoring pass to TE Jeremy Sprinkle with 6:37 remaining in the contest. That boosted Arkansas to a 21-20 advantage, one which they managed to cling to through to the end of the game. Heroics aside, the 6-foot-1, 216-pound Allen did throw a pair of interceptions. He will look to iron out the hiccups when Arkansas faces off with TCU on September 10. Conventional wisdom figures that they will need more than 21 points if they want to win that one.
Sep 3 - 7:54 PM

Arkansas redshirt senior WR Keon Hatcher (foot) has been medically cleared to play.

Hatcher actually received medical clearance prior to the start of August camp, but his health was doubly confirmed on Arkansas' opening depth chart. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder has undergone a pair of surgeries on his left foot since breaking it against Toledo last September. In a healthy 2014, he caught 43 passes for 568 yards and six touchdowns. He has the potential to be the Razorbacks' No. 1 wideout in the coming season.

Arkansas senior WR Dominique Reed (ankle) will be able to play in Saturday's showdown with Louisiana Tech.

"He looks good," said Arkansas HC Bret Bielema. Reed sprained his ankle in mid-August. Bielema hasn't always been pleased with Reed's work this offseason -- earlier this month, the coach said that he "hasn't had a good summer" -- but appreciates the efforts the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder has made of late, saying this week, "He was nothing but a shining star in the rehab. Being on time, 6 in the morning, two or three times a day getting himself back in a position to be out there." Last sesaon, he notched 28 catches for 535 yards and six touchdowns. "I know I’m hard on him," Bielema explained. "I’m hard on him because I love him. I think he’s got a chance to be a special player."

Arkansas redshirt sophomore QB Rafe Peavey will transfer to SMU.

Redshirt junior Austin Allen was already named the team's starter, so Peavey might see a clearer path to playing time at SMU since Allen has two seasons of eligibility remaining. Redshirt freshman Ty Storey and freshman Cole Kelley are now the Razorbacks' primary backups. Peavey underwent back surgery this offseason and will likely redshirt the 2016 season due to transfer regulations.

Arkansas redshirt senior RB Kody Walker is back in a walking boot after a teammate landed on his foot in practice.

Walker broke his right foot during practice in April. He was expected to open the season healthy and as the starting running back, but there might be some uncertainty moving forward. In fact, beat writer Jason Kersey suggests the No. 1 running back could be decided between Rawleigh Williams III and Devwah Whaley. Walker will be in a walking boot for "the next several days."

Arkansas freshman RB T.J. Hammonds recently underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

The injury was of the non-contact variety. This will likely keep Hammonds sidelined for an extended amount of time, and we wonder if he ends up taking a redshirt. We know the Razorbacks lost tow ball carriers to the NFL in Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins, and are looking to reload at the position. Hammonds was recruited as both a receiver and running back.

Arkansas senior WR Dominique Reed will be out at least one week after spraining his ankle.

Reed could miss practice next week as well. "We hope to get him back on game week," Bret Bielema said. "Nothing from a season-long standpoint, but he did roll that ankle pretty good so he will be out for the next week-and-a-half, two weeks." Last season Reed produced 28 catches for 535 yards and six touchdowns. However, Reed's preseason performance has been criticized by coaches and media members due to dropped passes and inconsistency.

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema indicated that junior DE Tevin Beanum will return to the team at the start of the fall semester.

Beanum was not on Arkansas' 105-man roster at the start of August camp, as he was dealing with what Bielema termed as a "situation." The 6-foot-4, 251-pounder looks to be in the clear now, though. Said Bielema, "We expect Tevin to join us for sure when school starts if not maybe before. I talked to him Sunday and he was really, really upbeat about everything." Last season, he recorded 30 tackles (7.0 for loss), two sacks and a fumble recovery in 11 games. DC Robb Smith is looking forward to Beanum's return, saying, "We'll get him ready and he'll be ready to go for us. But he's a guy we're certainly counting on."
